Have the analogy/stereotype jokes related to programming and OSs ever been updated? Examples follow...

There was if operating systems ran the airlines
, which was pretty cool but it came out around 1996. There's also if programming languages were cars
, which has gotta be 25 years old (updated here
, nice try but lacking obvious big-name languages like Delphi). In a related vein, there's also the real programmers
list, but except for the language sections it's just geek stereotypes (which I'm not looking for).
So, have any new jokes of this type surfaced? I still find it entertaining to peruse over new, exotic, and sometimes mysterious technologies with the use of stereotypes and funny analogues.
